I never pass up an opportunity to snuggle with the kids. Bean woke up a little upset last night and wanted to sleep next to us. As tired as I am - knowing I am going to have a squirmy toddler an inch from my face all night, I happily carried him into our bed. Not because I want to coddle him, but because I want to cuddle him. He's not going to want to crawl in bed with us for too much longer. I am taking the opportunities when they come so I can have no regrets. Hearing him talk in his sleep just like Daddy, feeling his warm little body next to mine, and seeing his cute little lips pucker while he sleeps - I would hate to miss this. I am soaking up every ounce of their little-ness. Some people don't understand, but that doesn't matter, right? All that matters is Bean knows he is loved, he knows he is cherished, and he knows without a doubt - Daddy and Mommy will always be there for him... even when he's "too old".
